Throughout Hollywood’s illustrious history, moviegoers have been treated to a vast array of unique and intriguing projects.

Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company has jumped aboard the highly anticipated sequel film Beetlejuice 2 which is currently in the early stages of production, and it sounds like die hard fans of its predecessor are in for something special with this project.
Originally released in 1988, Beetlejuice tells the story of a deceased couple who are forced to haunt their own home after it is sold following their death and a new family moves in with big plans.
